Faith requires that we be willing to surrender ourselves to God and his will, trusting that God will keep his promises. Abraham's story tells us that faith is less of a leap than it is a single step in a God-ordained direction. If we think we can take that step, then we need to recognize that it won't be easy.
If we think we can't take the step of faith, then we need to lean in and listen to God even more closely. We won't know for sure, however, until we take the first step!
